Cherry Creek, S. D. Jan. 2, '09. 
Those who read the Eyanpaha: 
Friends. 

I am now 24 years old. 
When I was small the Episcopal 
minister baptized me. 

Yesterday I joined the Catho- 
lic church. I did so because I 
believe that the whole teaching 
of the Catholic church is the 
teaching of Christ. That's the 
reason why I became a catholic. 
Our priest, Father Vogel bap- 
tized me conditionally. When I 
joined the Catholic church, I 
promised God that I won't take 
any intoxicating drink all my life. 
Nobody told me to promise that, 
and anyhow I promised it. I 
promised it because I believe it 
the best for both my soul and 
my body. 

This morning I received holy 
Communion. I have found the 
true church: I am happy. 

I wish a Happy New Year to 
all the readers of the Eyanpaha. 
Truly Yours 
Walter Daniel Creek.
